SPAG - Seven Parishes Action Group
SPAG was a body jointly established by the Seven Parish Councils of Bishopton, Great Stainton, Little Stainton, Sadberge, East and West Newbiggin, Great Burdon and Redmarshall and represented the interests of well over 2000 local residents.
Whilst not against renewable energy, the body was appalled at the amount of applications that were being processed in the rush to beat the deadline for onshore development. It was considered that the cumulative effect of all of these and others rumoured would have had devastating consequences on the lives of residents .
